“Nice Selection”
Reviewed 23 September 2013

My family meets here every couple of months to have brunch. We are never disappointed. This Golden Corral has a nice selection of hot and cold foods. The food is usually the right temperature, not lukewarm like some buffets. The soups are very good. We love the breads -- they have a version of Challah bread that I can't avoid. The yeast rolls with honey butter are also yummy. I like the Mexican selections -- I can make a taco salad with the ingredients I prefer. I'm not as enamored of the deserts, but I'm pretty picky about sweets. My family usually raves about the desert bar. It's a busy place, but they manage crowds well. The prices are reasonable and the employees are usually efficient and fairly friendly.

“Good Hot Buffet Food”
Reviewed 14 May 2013

No waiting, you can choose what foods you like or feel like eating that day as there is a very large variety. You can also have a steak or stir fry made to your preference while you wait. Lots of salads and desserts. Very reasonable price.

“Good selection, to crowded”
Reviewed 14 April 2013 via mobile

Good selection of food. Ribs were great shrimp and fish were good. All around not a bad buffet. The only problem was it was to crowed and the screeming babies did not make for a peaceful meal.

“Lots of Food - Good Value - Great for Families or Groups”
Reviewed 6 March 2013

We've been to the Golden Coral several times. It's a great spot to meet family with kids and have a meal. They have a very large selection of foods to choose from. Items include things such as: a salad bar, soups, fried chicken, pizza, make your own tacos, steak, liver, meat loaf, fried shrimp, grilled fish, wide assortment of veggies (cabbage, mashed potatoes, carrots, green beans, etc.), baked sweet and regular potatoes, many dessert selections, dip your own fruit/cookies in chocolate and a large roll assortment. I know I'm leaving out a lot of items even with that list. So there is basically something for everyone. We have gluten sensitive family members, vegetarians, and carnivores and we all can find something to eat at this buffet. The prices are very reasonable. Drinks come with free refills. The place is quite large, but always seems to be busy. Even with large crowds, the food is constantly refilled and it's easy to get to the items you want. We will continue to visit this restaurant.

“Salty and Need Patience”
Reviewed 27 December 2012 via mobile

The waitresses are ususlly nice, however very busy and don't have a lot of time for patrons.
Most people do not supervise their children and staff does not enforce this rule (I've seen a sign osted).
The food is very salty! I am also someone who does not add salt to food.
It's very popular here in Frederick. There are many times that there is a line going out yhe door.
